INFO & TIPS
Note: this is a tricky recipe. It depends on how your oven bakes, the time will differ in each oven. The cake needs to be served and eaten right away if you wish to see the center gooey. Best made in a ramekin that's greased well.
#variation: to make a vanilla lava cake, use a good quality white chocolate that bakes well.
